Sports were made to dig deep once again to see off Little Common FC in the FA Cup
48 Hours after our last meeting we were back again to face little Common in the FA Cup replay. Gaffa Paul Johnson rang the changes from Sundays draw, debuts for Hamilton Bunga, and James Russell and a recall for Simo Mnbonki (aka Jeff). Sports once again started brightly and should have been in front before good work from Scott Harris saw Jason smash sports 1-0 up on 24 minutes. we then had a series of chances to go further ahead but yet again were undone by an excellent quick free kick which saw Common draw level. Sports didn't rest there and Scott 'the Hitman' Harris put sports 2-1 up on 41 minutes after outmuscling the defence to hammer the ball home.
The 2nd half saw sports play a fair bit on the break with Little Common FC really having a go. James Russell had to save well with his feet from a 1 on 1 and then Sports back line were called apon to deal with a series of crosses. Little Common should have made it 2-2 at the death when it looked easier to score but the forward somehow found the arms of James Russell.
So sports progress, a away dated to Sevenoaks now await who won 6-1 in there game. Next up is our debut in the Bostik league, its been a long wait but im sure the lads are chopping at the bit to get going
